Doctor Who actress Mary Tamm, best known to us for playing Romana 1 alongside Tom Baker, has unfortunately died this morning from a long battle with cancer in a London hospital at 62 years old.
This news comes via her agent, who let us know that after suffering from cancer for 18 months, she finally leaves us and her husband, daughter and grand-son. Our thoughts are with her family at this dreadful time.
Mr Langford, her agent for 22 years, said: "She had a great zest for life. She was a fantastic actress - she played stage parts of such range, parts that would take your breath away. She could play any role, and do so wonderfully." He also said that Tamm had been saddened by the deaths of Elisabeth Sladen and Angharad Rees. He added, "All of these people who she knew were going".
Tamm actually released an autobiography titled First Generation prior to her death. This book was published in September 2009 by Fantom Films.
We do not know much more at the moment and will update this post as we know more.
Only a few years ago Mary Tamm also spoke about female cancers with 4 other well-known TV Presenters/actors.
This news comes via BBC News and The Mirror.
